A 12-year-old boy presented with three episodes of partial seizures with secondary generalization. On investigation, he was diagnosed as a case of neurocysticercosis of the left parietal lobe. He was treated with albendazole and phenytoin and was followed for the next eight years. Computerized tomography scan showed signs of resolution with no further seizure activity.

Keywords: Seizures, neurocysticercosis, phenytoin.
